A few possibly silly questions:)

I have a little bit of a dumb blonde question. I just found out I am pregnant and I need to get on prenatal vitamins. Can I go get them at a grocery store? Are there any recommended brands? Do I have to get them prescribed?

You can get them prescribed, but don't have to.  They could make you more nauseous in the first trimester so you may have to try a few different brands.  You can get them at almost any store.  I got the gummy ones because I have a hard time remembering to take pills, but they don't have iron so you have to take an iron supplement

Bigger grocery stores with a pharmacy like Walmart. I was never able to find them in the smaller ones but there is a chance.

I got mine from Walmart or CVS over the counter.
They are huge !
I hated them.
They gave me weird dreams.

You can pretty much find them at any store. You might have to try a couple different brands and see what works best for you!
